According to the folks at The Hollywood Reporter, Leigh Whannell will write the script for the upcoming remake. Sources say that while there is no deal for him to direct, the door is open for that possibility. Andrew Rona and Alex Heineman are producing the project. Horror master John Carpenter is on board as executive producer.
